"Which is the natural man and which the spirit? Who deciphers them?" Mistaken identities in Shakespeare´s comedies.

Interpreting Shakespeare both on the page and on the stage has often yielded interesting insights into the times and contexts in which the Bard worked and lived. Above all, it has opened new ways to understanding the nature of human passions.

The theme of mistaken identities in four Shakespearean comedies will be discussed in the light of Elizabethan stage conventions and of more recent interpretations.The talk will be illustrated by ARCI Drama Club, who will be play reading some scenes from the comedies.
